Hi Stephen,

Beautiful black fungi, but pov not so good.
From above is not so nice, i had set down the camera on the ground and take than the photo.
Than you'll see they call this fungi so.

Colors and sharpness are good and natural.

I hope you understand what i mean.

Regards Gert

I have to agree with Gert a POV lower to the ground would have helped to give these fungi form. Other wise good exposure it always a bit hit and miss with black fungi.

Too strange. Nature puzzles everytime. TFS
